Seventy Minutes (Election 2020 Edition): What to Expect, What it Means, and Where America Goes from Here


This news magazine-style virtual event is exclusively available to Committee of Seventy guests. Just 15 days before the election, national commentators, pollsters, politicians, and historians will join in conversation to help us anticipate the Presidential election and what it means for America and the world.


If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for Seventy Minutes and making a greater impact on our work, please email Lauren Cristella. Sponsorship and ticket information can be found on the Seventy Minutes Sponsorship Pledge Form.

For just $250, you can join this exciting evening and become a Committee of Seventy member. In addition to access to the exclusive programming on October 20th, you will receive all the benefits of our annual membership including invitations to Members-only Experiences and Reception, Advanced Notification & Sign-up for Events, Quarterly Membership Impact Reports, and exclusive C70 Swag. You can also purchase a ticket for the event for only $150. 

During this unprecedented election year, all eyes are on Pennsylvania. Amidst a global pandemic that has had far reaching health, social, and economic ramifications across Philadelphia and the Commonwealth, our country is also having a reckoning with systemic racism. The importance of C70’s work, in this city, in this year, cannot be understated.


If ever there was a time in our history when Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the nation needed the Committee of Seventy, this is it.
